Re: Komplete 5 399 .. is it worth it?

But if online retailers (at least the few I checked) are also selling it for $399 then quantities are probably not that limited.

Re: Komplete 5 399 .. is it worth it?

Perhaps offering this kind of sale is a guaranteed way for NI to get a quick cash infusion. I don't see any other reason they would offer the bundle for this price. I was actually planning on paying full price for Komplete at some point. This price is simply sick. I'll note that it does say that qua...

Notice that V2 of all synths are shipping for free this summer to V1 owners, and also there 50% off their synths as they are clearing out current stock (bottom of page).

Re: Why Upgrading to Live 8 is a Waste of Money

no seriously, kids, ableton's great for arranging, editing, and a new method of dj'ing, but actually making tracks with the built in instruments? uh, no? You're committing the same sin the guy who wrote the article made... you are assuming that everyone uses Live the same way you do. I don't DJ at ...

Make a keyboard cat video with Youtube clips in Live 7/8

Ah YouTube... how you overflow with ripe targets. Here's how to sic the keyboard cat on anything you like: 1) Find a suitable clip on YouTube. I used this one: 2) Go to http://www.keepvid.com, insert the URL of this clip as well as the keyboard cat URL, of course (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J---...

Re: Why Upgrading to Live 8 is a Waste of Money

Granted, some of his criticisms are valid, but the criticisms aren't the problem. The problem is that you lose all credibility when you criticize a paid software product if you aren't paying for it. Stir up the hornet's nest and you get Keyboard Cat. :o But hey... I've been where he is at. Of course...

Re: Features you would like to see in Ableton 9?

How about an innovative reworking of the worlds greatest realtime performance software that brings itself back in line with its original vision? Especially in regards to MEGA-SETS and the realtime needs of musicians moving from song to song. +1 How about tabs for multiple songs... if you had a coll...

Re: Does Ableton Live 8 Large include Operator?

It just seems a bit vague in the description as to what instruments come with it. Ableton Homepage -> Products -> Live 8 -> More info Nowhere is Operator listed. Most people buy the suite if they want any of the instruments because the instruments individually cost a lot. There are always people lo...

Re: Ableton Customer Support Top Notch

Perhaps you should only bother sending the email from the account that your serial numbers are registered to? I would think that any email address not on that list would be lower priority, if it is read at all. Also if it is a bug you might post it in the Bugs forum as well to ensure it is read. I'v...

Just contact Ableton support. You can call them but email works just as well. In the meantime play with the multitude of other instruments and Live. Make some music and don't worry about it. It will get taken care of.
